Initial Art (#CHAshow)

BLOG Erin Bassett - Initial Wall ArtIt's finally time to share with you one of the projects I created for CHA...this one was done for Amaco.

I used their Art Emboss Metal to create it along with my Cuttlebug to emboss it and my alcohol inks to color it.  I've created a tutorial on how I created it and it will be available on the Amaco site soon....I'll let you know when it's up.

So if you're at CHA stop by booth #1132 to see it in person!

A Little Valentine Love

It's no secret that I have really great friends!  I love to show them that I appreciate them by giving them a little somethin' somethin' this:

Erin Bassett - Judikins Embossing Powder - Unity Stamps 1CloseUp
I had heard about this awesome white embossing powder that was bright white had glitter in it and rushed home to order some for "the girls."  

Once it arrived I dug through my stamps and found my Unity KOTM - November 2010 stamps and made a little tag for them.  The white embossed bracket was done with the embossing powder on black it!!

I used my Tombow pens (743 and 755) directly on the hearts stamp, and then stamped it right onto my white paper.  I then used black ink to stamp the words "Friends Are...the Best" (also from Unity's 11/2010 KOTM) on top of the hearts.  I then cut around the hearts and mounted them on top of the tag with foam adhesive.

Scrapbook Layout: Monkeying Around

Erin Bassett - Imaginisce - Animal Crackers - Monkey When my niece was out here visiting a few months ago she had an assignment from school: take Spunky Monkey with her...take pics...and then add the pics and journaling to the class scrapbook.  We all had fun with the assignment!!

I used the new Imaginisce "Animal Crackers"line to create this page.  It's such a fun & bright line...I love it!


I'm finishing up with CHA stuff and can't wait to show you some of the things I've been working on.  Also, I have a new class that I think you're going to stay tuned.  :)



Card: You Are Fabulous

It's time for Imaginisce to unveil one of the new collections...Animal Crackers.  It's a kind of circus-y line, but can be used for everything else too.  Here's a fun card I created with it:

The "you are fabulous" stamp is by Unity and I think it's perfect for this card.  :)
